It's still winter. Here's what's going on.
- Tentatively, there will be a public reading of a new play of mine in May. More details as May approaches; I'm still writing it. For now, it is titled Come Down to Us.
I want to say thank you to the people who check this site often or subscribe to this feed to get updates on what's going on with me. Although I no longer have a social media presence, I'm always happy to share with friends, family and acquaintances what's going on. It's often difficult, though, because writers can't always share pieces of a thing that is not finished. Visual artists can let someone into their studio, and musicians can share sound files and play parts of songs for people, but writers can do no more than copy and paste text into an email, which - on a level of glamour - is just one notch above filling out an online survey. Though I'm currently writing a lot, and writing every day, it can appear to everyone else that I'm hibernating. A writing career consists of long periods of solitude in front of a computer before something surfaces for the public to read. So to all my friends and family who get to hear "Not much, still writing," when they ask what's new in my life, I want to say thanks. Your patience with me and interest in what I do despite there not always being much physical evidence of what I do, helps me to boldly go forth. I wouldn't be able to write much of anything without the regular support from friends and family, who voice their belief in me, especially on days when I don't share that same belief. You know who you are, and I love you all.
